Truth is stranger than fiction...



People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) does not shy away from attention grabbing news stories when it comes to furthering their cause of animalrights. As reported by the Akron Beacon Journal, the organization’s president, Ingrid E. Newkirk, recently wrote a letter to the real estate agent who listed infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer’s childhood home for sale. In the correspondence to agent Richard Lubinski, Newkirk said that PETA would like to turn the Ohio house into a vegan restaurant and “respond to the past with something positive.”


news.yahoo.com...

I'm not sure I get the logic:



The home, now listed for $295,000, was the location of Dahmer’s first murder in 1978. He killed, dismembered, and scattered the remains of Steven M. Hicks around the 1.5-acre property. Dahmer would later take the lives of 16 more victims. Newkirk wrote in her letter, “Dahmer’s old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.” It is unclear what Ms. Newkirk meant by ‘everything.’


I think this is more grandstanding than a viable start up, but kudos to PETA for convincing me more than ever that they are a whackjob organization...

Anyone with a lick of sense knows that a "Dahmer's restaurant" would need to be a "you grill it" steakhouse...

Rocky mountain oysters as house special?

It goes to show if you are crazy enough you can justify anything. Next up, PETA should turn the Amityville house into a doggy bed and breakfast/daycare.

Whoever gave the greenlight for this will probably be looking for work soon.

I wonder what the family of Steven M. Hicks feels about this?

Years ago I knew someone who rented out the Tate house to record an album. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time but cost them emotionally in the end when her family came for a visit.

PETA should know better then that!

I love animals. I have cats a dog and a reef tank full of live coral and fish, but PETA are a bunch of total whackos.

Further proof the folks over at PETA are imbeciles. I also don't get the logic. Why not buy a butcher shop in a nice area and convert it to a happy fruit stand where people can come and rob the fruit trees of their fertilized ova and then devour it in their own personal form of abortion of that plants offspring for selfish personal gain.

Imbeciles indeed. It might be the vitamin deficiency. Or maybe the persistent chapped lips and emaciated muscle tone makes eating meat painful.

Here's a slogan for them:

You kill 'em, we grill 'em.

That is so sick. They should be prosecuted or at least slapped down very hard for making fun out of horrific crimes. The best thing that they can do with the house is bulldoze it. Who wants to live in a house where evil took place. Lord knows what hauntings will occur there in the future. Gives me the chills. Yuck.

I would imagine the home is zoned residential so it can not be made into a restaurant without some legal wrangling. Sounds more like a publicity stunt to me.

Not necessarily only residential. It's not uncommon to have a mixed zone, especially if the house is grandfathered and the area has changed from residential to a low impact business zone.

But I don't doubt that this is some sort of publicity stunt for them. I find it to be very twisted to even suggest it.

I did not know that, thanks.

I agree it is a very bizarre idea.
